From Pueblo Indian trails to Elk Camino Real to the Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe has been a sought after destination for centuries. Global Running Culture, a non-profit organization, along with the Pueblo of Pojoaque and the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino are proud to present the premier running of the Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half Marathon, a destination event.
We invite you to run with us from the heart of historic Santa Fe to the magnificent Buffalo Thunder Casino down the Old Taos Highway. The 1,000 foot net downhill USATF-certified course provides spectacular views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains while dropping into the colorful Rio Grande Valley. You will run past the Santa Fe Opera, Camel Rock and through the Tesuque Pueblo on your way to Pojoaque along a route that our ancestors have run and walked for centuries.

There is ample parking at Buffalo Thunder. We encourage participants to park at the finish line and we will provide bus transportation for half marathoners to the starting line at Fort Marcy. We will also transport runners' sweats so they are waiting for you at the finish line. We will send out a detailed race day information sheet to all participants a couple of weeks before race day.
